1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Serial number 111175, 26" barrel, modified choke, 3" chamber, No box or hang tags. There is one small safe mark on the bottom of the butt stock. This shotgun is brand new and was purchased in 1954 and never shot. I am open to trades and reasonable offers. I also have another Model 42 made in 1934 that is 98% metal and 95%+ wood. I am asking $1650 shipped and insured. I an open to trades and reasonable offers on that shotgun also. The pictures are the 1954 gun. I have more photos and I can email them to interested parties.

    Mr. Wiedemann is a great person to do business with. I've had the pleasure of doing business with him on two seperate occasions and he is a gentleman you can trust.

    Very nice M 42 Fred! I wish I were in the market for one.

    1954 is very late for a "transition" buttstock. According the Schwing, your receiver was milled in 1952 and I would guess that your gun was made in 1952 unless the stock has been replaced. It is a lovely gun and I would like to own it. I would also like to see pictures posted of the 1934 gun and its serial number. Thanks.

    According to the George Madis book on dates of manufacture, the last serial number for 1953 was 108202. The last number for 1954 was 117201.
    Please note the change in price on the original post.

    According to the Schwing book , the last 42 produced in 1953 was on December 2 , 1953 and was 128,410. The last of 1954 was 137,760 Dec. 2 ,1954.Serial 111,175 is listed as 1952. The gun may have been assembled later and is common to have happened. Jeff

    Some years ago I traded mine for a .45 Colt single action then traded the Colt for a Hudson Bay parka so I could watch the hockey games in comfort.

    The parka went to the Goodwill. Wonder who has the guns?
